So, I bought the 4 point quick detachment system for my FLHX and got to looking at passenger back rests(actually have a woman I want to be nice to) and the prices are outrageous. About $180 for just the sissy bar then extra for the pad! Granted, I know HD isn't cheap, but this is like adding a little salt into the wound. Ya spend $22k on a motorcycle and they want to stiff ya on a f***ing pad. :
Checked out Kuryakyn and their stuff is just as much and doesn't appear to be compatible with Harley's quick detach system.
Anyone got ideas for a cheaper alternative? Guess I'll start scouring ebay for now.
I agree with you. The least they could do is give you a gift card or store credit like they do at our dealership. Alot of people figure "If I spend 22k on a bike I'm probably not gonna let a couple hundred more bother me." and that's ok too but HD MoCo is making so much money on their bikes anyway, what's it going to hurt for them to throw in a simple backrest on the deal for free?
